FIRE MERGER-TRX-PKG


A plan to merge two Collier County fire districts is now up to the people who depend on their life-saving services.

Norman Feder

Commissioner, North Naples Fire District

11:35 11:40

Obviously the whole idea of this is to be able to utilize the resources better

Big Corkscrew Island Fire and North Naples Fire have been discussing the merger for months -

and five drafts later -

they're ready to bring their plan to the public and hear what they have to say about it.

Bill McDaniel

Big Corkscrew

04:13 04:18

Concerns of service, concerns of fees associated with those services

They say the current plan addresses both of those concerns -

claiming the merger will be cheaper for the districts and the taxpayers -

while maintaining the same response times and level of service.

They even hope to add more firefighters and fire stations down the road.

McDaniel

05:29 05:36

As a resident we should want more people on the ground coming and helping the residents with their homes and saving the folks

Now it's just a matter of convincing people to get behind the plan --

Janet Vasey

North Naples

07:54 08:04

Most people I think would vote for the status quo which would be a no to consolidation if there wasn't something that people could point at and say this is going to make it better

They hope to prove the plan will make things better through public meetings next month -

leading up to the ballot question this November affecting every voter in both districts.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

AFTERNOON STORMS

Our typical July weather continues across southwest Florida. For the next several days we will be tracking hot and humid weather with afternoon thunderstorms each day. Overnight lows will drop to the mid 70's and daytime highs will be in the lower 90's. Again - pretty typical weather for July. As we saw today, some areas of southwest Florida will end up with very heavy rain on the order of an inch or more while other places stay dry. The scattered/isolated nature of thunderstorm development this time of year will be very evident through the weekend.

Boating weather looks pretty good through the 7 day forecast period. In general, skies will be partly cloudy and afternoon storms will tend to drift back toward the beaches toward sunset. Winds will be fairly light during the day and an afternoon sea breeze will set up. The Gulf of Mexico water temperature is at 87 degrees today.

The tropics remain quiet and no storms are expected to develop for the next 5 to 7 days. Return to index of stories...
